Ready for some fun??
Enjoy the great outdoors and help others by joining us in person at North Park or virtually from wherever you are to support Strands of Compassion and the young women they serve. You can run, walk or even skip, if that’s your thing. Hang out with friends and make new ones.
Strands of Compassion provides resources and support to young women aging out of the foster care system who have suffered signficant trauma, abondment, abuse and/or neglect. These vulnerable young women are not prepared for independent living. Many come from residential facilities, group homes, and juvenile correction facilties and have signifcant behavioral issues. Strands of Compassion is there for them, providing guidance in job skills training, furthering their education, achieving life and financial goals, and overcoming their past to reach their full potential!
